100 Sustainable Seafood Recipes from the Pacific Coast
It can be intimidating to shop for seafood! Let this deliciously smart cookbook lure you to Pacific coast seafood that's good for your health and good for the planet.
Making smart seafood choices has never been more confusing, yet knowing whether it's healthy to eat and whether it's overfished or been caught in ways that harm other species or the environment is crucial. Chef and seafood advocate Becky Selengut helps simplify the issue for consumers. This fully revised and expanded edition of 100 recipes includes, of course, salmon, as well as new additions such as lingcod, Pacific cod, wahoo (or ono), mahi mahi, and herring. From shellfish to finfish to "littlefish" (think sardines), there are recipes for 20 varieties of "good fish." Also included are cooking techniques (such as how to sear a scallop perfectly), practical tips for buying and caring for seafood, and the most current sustainability information. Seattle sommelier April Pogue provides wine pairings for each recipe. Good Fish is a bible for Pacific Coast sustainable seafood.
Included are recipes for: Clams, mussels, oysters, Dungeness crab, shrimp, scallops, wild salmon, Pacific halibut, black cod, lingcod, rainbow trout, albacore tuna, Pacific cod, Arctic char, mahi mahi, wahoo (or ono), sardines, herring, squid, and caviar.
